Integrated Computer Engineering Design Curriculum


"It is likely that this new curriculum will ... serve as a national model." - NSF grant proposal reviewer.

What is ICED?

ICED is the new curriculum for computer engineering majors at URI. Its major distinguishing characteristic from programs at other schools is its multi-year project. The current project entails the design, construction, test and evaluation of a complete computer system, including processor, compiler, memory and network interface. With this breadth of hands-on experience, the project integrates the material studied in the core courses and demonstrates to the student where material fits in the big picture.

Purpose of this website:

The ICED website is primarily a resource for ICED students throughout their computer engineering studies. There is detailed documentation on the ICED hardware and software, and tutorials on the design tools.

There is also information for instructors from other schools seeking to use ICED material. Note: all material is copywritten and all material may be used without charge as long as URI is credited.
